Manchester U is interested in Frenkie de Jong, a Dutch midfielder, and Ansu Fati, a Spanish midfielder, both of whom belong to Barcelona.



On February 9, the Daily Mail (UK) reported that Manchester U is interested in F. de Jong and Ansu Fati.

Manchester U has been interested in F. de Jong for a long time, and although there were reports that the clubs had reached an agreement on a fee of 71 million pounds (about 11.2 billion yen) during the transfer market last summer, the transfer did not take place as a result of the player’s own wishes. F. de Jong has been a mainstay at Barcelona so far this season, making 25 official appearances, but the possibility of a move to Manchester U has emerged once again.


According to reports, Manchester U manager Eric ten Haf feels the need to expand his squad for the upcoming season and beyond, and is hoping to acquire an immediate asset in the summer transfer window. In particular, he still hopes to reunite with F. de Jong, with whom he worked with during his time at Ajax, and the club is keeping a close eye on the player’s progress.


In addition to F. de Jong, Manchester U is also keeping a close eye on A. Fati. A. Fati, now 20 years old, has taken over the number “10” after the departure of Argentina’s Lionel Messi (Paris Saint-Germain/France). Although he has played 31 official games so far this season, he has only started 9 games and has not been able to secure enough opportunities to play. Rumors of his departure from Barcelona in the summer have surfaced, and Manchester U has reportedly contacted the player through his agent.


With Barcelona still in serious financial difficulties, the Daily Mail reports that the club will need to cut wages by around £177 million in the summer, and with F. de Jong and A. Fati expected to secure large transfer fees in addition to salary cuts if they are sold, it is possible that Barcelona could decide to sell the two players in the summer. The report also states that Barcelona may decide to sell the two players in the summer. Manchester U is expected to continue to keep a close eye on the two players.
